Nancy Drew

CBS announced in October that it is bringing back the popular Nancy Drew mystery series, but the new character will not be the way you imagined her.

The new Nancy Drew character will not be Caucasian -- and she may not even be a biological female.

"She is diverse, that is the way she is written," said CBS Entertainment president Glenn Geller in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter on Tuesday.

Geller told THR it was too early in the process to say whether Drew will be black, Asian, Latino, or even a biological female.

He said the decision would hinge on finding the right actress for the part.

Geller said Drew will be in her 30s and a detective for the NYPD. She will use her "uncanny observational skills," while "navigating the complexities" of the new world of social media.

Geller stressed that "diversity" -- a catchword for gay agenda -- will play a major role in upcoming TV programming.

CBS chief Nina Tassler has reportedly made female empowerment her top priority at the network.

Nancy Drew first appeared as a beloved character in mystery books in the 1930s.

An ABC television series, Nancy Drew Mysteries, initially starring 24-year-old Pamela Sue Martin, ran from 1977 to 1979.

  • Cricket404

    My 6yo daughter used to watch the SheZow cartoon until she figured out it was something strange going on. Sounds like I need to have THAT conversation with her about the in-betweens, they are OUT the box! I just don't know how....maybe I'll use Amiyah's pictures.

  • SandrasNewFave

    I guess. I wouldn't peg Laverne as the poster child for female empowerment, but (sigh) I guess.

  • Just Keya

    I'm not watching a man who dresses up as a woman play a woman. When there are lots of real women to pick from. Sorry.

  • harley_quinn2.0

    Writers don't have an original bone in their body nowadays.

  • Too Many Colors

    If Nancy Drew is a male...doesn't that make her a Hardy Boy? One of their cousins? No?

  • Too Many Colors

    If they make Nancy Drew a boy, what sex they gonna make her homegirl named GEORGE?

    I have mad questions

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    THIS!!! Just capitalizing on our childhood memories.

  • Let Your Soul Glow

  • harley_quinn2.0

  • LeBrick James

    The devil is a liar.
    That's all I got to say about that.

  • Too Many Colors

    I have anger. Her mantra/identity is being A GIRL DETECTIVE

  • 1/8

    So, the new Nancy Drew will be a man who dresses like a woman, writes bad checks, and prostitutes himself to "make ends meet?" Sounds exciting!

  • Yardgirl

    Thank you!!!!

  • Junkanoo

    Why can't these tv executives give birth to new ideas there going back to the 70's to reboot Nancy Drew ? Lazy unimaginative pea brains. Sandra what have trans women done to you,you don't seem to like them very much. Hell I was pissed at them to when they Attacked Ru Paul's Drag Race an made the show drop a term they felt was offensive but I've gotten over it.

  • Too Many Colors

    I don't want Nancy to be in her 30s.
    In NYC.
    Black or Latina.

    I want that bitch to stay going to sock hops, being nosey, and going steady with Ned Nickerson.

  • http://Copblock.org aDingoDrankMyBabies

    Chile, she won't be here any time soon. She made cabbage last night. Trust when I tell you her innards are currently having a turf war???

  • Low E. {CIRCA 1908}

    SEAUX NANCY DREW GREW UP TO BECOME ALMOST A WOMAN??

  • Low E. {CIRCA 1908}

    LMAO! STAY WITTY BREN!

  • JJ

    So basically they gone recycle the same ish but be like "Hey guys were edgy and having a Asian Transgender Nancy Drew as a gimmick....I mean to show diversity". Diversity my two round plump cheeks if yall wanted diversity why are most shows 99% white people and the 1-2 token black, latino, Asian or the one of two same Indian actors/Actresses in Hollywood.

  • Too Many Colors

    They might really try it and make her a single mama.

    She herself was raised not in a two parent home. She unsavory based on that alone ain't she?

    Carson Drew was the first single dad I ever knew

  • Too Many Colors

    According to this shyt yes

  • nicelyput32

    I won't be watching. I can't add another show to my watch list. DVR stays full of shows that thought I'd watch but haven't. On top of that t have Netflix and Hulu.

  • Just Keya

    SO then Nancy Drew will be a trans person, who had a single dad, or maybe two dads, who is super nosey, and trying to find a man to love him/her? LMAO. Nah. I'll pass.

  • Too Many Colors

    Girl! All of this. Yes.

  • i troll it like i see it

    Yup I was all psyched about the Jem movie because I used to watch it as a girl.. Then I read the movie was so bad they had to pull it from theaters after just two weeks.

  • Too Many Colors

    Kristy was a baby lesbun anyways. So why not

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    Right!!!! After I read there were no orphans, holograms, or misfits, I knew they changed the storyline and didn't even bother :coffee: Jem with no Starlight House :chase:

  • 1/8

    You tried it, but Nancy Drew's father is a widower and Nancy wasn't born out of wedlock. ?

  • SunRiseBlossom

    Wow... That would be a slap in the face!!!

  • harley_quinn2.0

    No, not true! #Iamindenial ?

  • harley_quinn2.0

    I need another show or two, what are you watching?

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    chile.....

  • i troll it like i see it

    They had to know they couldn't switch it up THAT much and no one would notice...most girls over 30 know the storyline from the cartoon! I loved Jem, had that big azz doll and everything.

  • imright

  • Justlooking2SayIT
  • Mz.Capricorn

    @Justlooking. Lol. An unclockable solving crime.....Girl that sounds very interesting. We can call him/her Nathan Drew.

  • nicelyput32

    The Good Wife, Quantico, Major Crimes, Ray Donovan, Chicago PD, Chicago Med, The Haves and the Have Nots, House of Lies, those are the shows I actually watch but I'm not faithful to any.

  • jussaying

    Mozart In the Jungle is amazing (on Amazon Prime; just won a Globe); American Crime (with Regina Hall); House of Lies is good too; Limitless; Jane the Virgin; The Fall (Netflix); Shameless

  • jussaying

    THIS. And the POC is always propping up the white main character. Or they are there to "explain" cultural differences to a target white audience. Like why do we have to explain ourselves? White people never explain their corny jokes, allusions, alliterations to the POC audience.

  • jussaying

    Thank you. They are repetitively recycling old content in film and television. Too many remakes.

  • Justlooking2SayIT

    #Charliesheen is a brave man. Gott give him props. He was in Dr. OZ. He made no excuse that he loved ak things yhat fuc u up. He seems to be a charasmatic person. Say no to

    BUT "HOW SWAY?" IJS!

  • YES I SAID IT…

    I'm ao with u on this... I'll pass

  • Vonn

    If it's not a biological woman...it's not a woman.

  • Blak

    fuck it...will NOT be watching. You cannot compete with the real Nancy Drew Mysteries, which you can catch on Netflix...especially using a trans gendered character as if this is the norm. Thank goodness I cut the chord with cable...I will not be tuning in.

  • TheRealLee

    No plans on watching Nancy Drew even if she was a space alien.

  • IlluminatiQueen

    Stay mad bitch.

  • Jean Paul Le’vonne

    Oh lord!

  • IlluminatiQueen

    Bitch I'm a woman.

  • Vonn

    Only if your DNA supports this claim.

  • IlluminatiQueen

    What is dna beyond a genetic coding that decides if one has a pussy or a dick. Neurosurgeons classified my brain as female. Im unclockable honey. RESPECT THAT.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    There is no such thing as a female brain. A brain is a brain. Your DNA is the blueprint that your brain works from. If you had a female brain you wouldn't need to take female hormones.

    I'm not interested in the homosexual or transgender community. Nor will I be watching this show. I don't care how progressive mainstream or tolerate society has become no one will force me to accept this deviant lifestyle point blank period.
